Huawei and Apple are two big winners…

The wearables market continues to grow, largely at the expense of the huge potential of Android users. Apple and Huawei rank first in the two positions, and we expect similar trends to continue this year.

According to the latest reports, both Huawei and Apple have made big profits in the smartwatch field, as the respective market has grown strongly in 2021.

CCS Insight released its annual wearables report on global wearable sales, which shows that smartwatches are still relevant, especially among Android users.

The report estimates that 232 million wearable devices are expected to be delivered in 2021 and 193 million in 2020.

Apple remains the biggest winner, with sales increasing by 19% in 2021 compared to 2020. However, its market share is declining as competitors are catching up, and CCS Insight attributes this to greater interest by owners of smartphones that are running Android system.

Global sales of smart watches and wearable devices in 2021:

2020 2021 the changes%
an Apple 44 million 52 million 19%
Huawei 32 million 45 million 43%
zip 46 million 38 million -18%
Fitbit 15 million 14 million 8%
Samsung 11 million 13 million 18%
the others 47 million 71 million 52%
Total 193 million 232 million 20%

As Android smartphone users become increasingly interested in smartwatches, Samsung experienced positive sales dynamics in 2021, with the latest Galaxy Watch, which now uses Google’s core operating system, a real hit among Samsung smartphone owners. .,” He said James Manning Smitha senior analyst at CCS Insight.

With Wear OS 3.0 on the horizon and the ability to watch the Google Pixel, this trend could pick up in 2022.

Huawei was also a big winner last year. With the introduction of the Huawei Watch 3 and Watch GT 3 smartwatches, smartwatch sales increased by 19% and the entire wearable device base by more than 40%.

Samsung also saw 18% growth in wearables in 2021, thanks in particular to the Galaxy Watch 4.

Also among the winners were the losers and Fitbit (technically Google), although with the introduction of the Charge 5, the amount of products delivered fell 8% in smartwatches and fitness monitors.

After a quiet 2021, Zepp Health’s business also fell sharply, down 18%.

The results of the Wearable Devices Report 2021 weren’t too surprising, but they confirm the growing trends of cheaper smartwatches and the great potential of the Android market.

So one thing is clear, which is that the wearables market isn’t going to cool down that fast.
